Welcome to the direct descendant of Dragon's Lair Webzine:
Issue 7, Volume 1
Issue 8 will be online September 1st. (or thereabouts)
You are vistor number
Since January 27th 1997
Welcome back for our 7th issue! This one is on time, my
vacation is over, and
things are almost back to normal. This is a smaller issue than last
month, but only because there were fewer submissions. I'd dearly love
to have huge issues every month! But, no matter how many stories there
are in an issue, rest assured that they are all good ones!
In this issue there are new writers, new chapters in our
stories, updates on our reports, our letter column, and a new cartoon.
Please visit our letter column and drop us a note. Our writers
read the Lettercol to look for words of encouragement. Not many of you
readers have the time to send e-mail to the writers whose stories you
especially enjoyed. Well, that's why our Assistant Editor worked up the
Letter Column Page, so folks can let everyone know what kind of job
they're doing. Its helped me to realize that I need to do a better job
proofreading, something that I did this issue. I may not have caught
every mistake, but I caught more of 'em!
I'd like to thank those of you who have sent e-mails for your
Keep those e-mails coming, folks! Without those messages we will never
know what we need to improve upon. Hope you like the improvements so
We had 520 Readers visit Aphelion in June! Thank you! Please
keep coming back
for each new issue as it goes online.
Also, there are links to back issues of Aphelion at the
bottom of this page.
You can still see everything that has appeared in the Zine so far.
I have an e-mail address for submissions, click
here to submit a story or just read the submission guidlines.
For now I hope everyone will bear with me while I get the Zine on it's
feet. Some folks have asked about submitting Poetry: While we do not
publish poetry ourselves, there is someone for the poets to turn to- The
Writer's Club, a poetry Webzine run by one of our friends
from the DALnet IRC Chat network. Visit #the_WritersClub on DALnet and
check out the Writer's Club Webpage if you are poetically inclined.
I have been informed that our parent Webzine is going to go
production! Dragon's Lair Webzine is coming back! Way to go, Roger! I
knew you couldn't stay away for very long. When DL is back online I'll
link to it the same way I have done for Writer's Club. It's not a
Webring, but it'll be similar.
And now, I'll shut up and let you get to reading. Thanks again
visiting. Enjoy yourselves!
